Electronic Music by Judith Shatin Presented on March 7 in Cincinnati, Ohio and Film Music on March 8 in Toronto, CanadaPosted by s21concerts in Concert Announcement
The composer writes, “Tape Music (Stereo) is a meditation on tape, as a collection of materials that are emblematic of our throwaway culture and, yet, can be used to mend items. It is also a nostalgic tribute to the genre of ‘tape music’ from the early days of electronic music, and one that persists despite the ongoing changes in playback media.” Read her complete notes at http://judithshatin.com/tape-music-stereo/.
